    And Danny Manning's Dad learned a lot about coaching while being a truck driver. At least Cunningham's brother is highly regarded as a coach.

    I think the hire was stinky, but let's not ignore that he played college ball and played 9 years between the NBA and the ABA as well as playing overseas before Brown bought his son by hiring him.

    no the rule is the “alumni rule”. Not the “I taught alumni rule”.

    I have zero problem with someone making a career teaching at a school and becoming a lifelong fan of that school. I'm pretty sure that most of the profs at Iowa State back in my time didn't get their degrees at Iowa State but there were a hell of a lot of them that wore their Cyclone fandom on their sleeves.

    First tavern hoks (UI/KU) and now tavern cats. It all makes sense now.

    Since this thread is now off topic, why is Sean Miller still coaching?

    I've been to a lot of college towns. Madison WI is the leader in my clubhouse.
    Waco so far is the worst.

    Well, no ****. You're such a genius and I wish I were as smart as you. I was asking how he still had a job after he clearly got caught.

    I stated the facts as to how the #2 recruit in the nation ended up at Okie State. Nothing in my post had any sort of negative connotation at all, let alone sounding "outraged". Do you only respond to things you're outraged by and therefore assume every response was triggered by outrage? Yikes.

    I am happy he went there and dont care at all that they hired his brother. If they want to put his brother in as one of their official assistant coaches and deal with the negatives around that (no experience vs. conference foes to help with game planning, no possibility of him building a relationship with future recruits since they know he will be gone in 1-2 years) then I have no problem with it.

    Assistant coaches are there primarily to help land recruits. It's within the rules and it landed them the #2 recruit in the nation. That means more eyes on the Big 12 and higher exposure for everyone who plays them. I like it.

    Somehow I've learned not to fear classes featuring one&done talent as their bell cow. They seldom if ever achieve anything outside the B12 and oft times wither away during the year to more seasoned outfits. Thus, winning the recruiting title is meaningless if that's the basis.
